Porcelain Veneers and Dental Crowns Transform Smiles
Cosmetic dentistry is an amazing thing. It can transform a less than attractive smile into an award winning grin, but how do you know what cosmetic dentistry procedures would be best for your face and your personality.
According to cosmetic dentist Dr. Mike Morris, some cosmetic dentistry procedures are better than others are including porcelain veneers and dental crowns.
Porcelain Veneers and Cosmetic Dental Crowns
Both cosmetic dental crowns and dental veneers are permanent. While porcelain veneers are less invasive than cosmetic dental crowns, they too require some removal of the enamel to make way for a perfect fit.
Porcelain Veneers for a New Smile
Dental veneers are thin sheets of porcelain made from a mold of your teeth. The dental grade porcelain mimics light and looks just like your natural teeth.
Because enamel needs to be removed, veneers are permanent. While your new restorations are being made, Dr. Morris may fit you with temporary veneers for teeth that are unsightly. The entire process requires two or three dental appointments.
Cosmetic Dental Crowns and Your Teeth
While dental veneers fit over the fronts of teeth, cosmetic dental crowns fit over the entire tooth. Cosmetic dental crowns look like natural teeth and cover dental implant posts as well.
Matched to your smile, cosmetic dental crowns require a significant amount of enamel removal. This makes cosmetic dental crowns more invasive than veneers.
Badly cracked and chipped are new again with Cosmetic dental crowns work wonders for cracked and chipped teeth. Stained teeth also look new with cosmetic dental crowns.
If you have large fillings, Chittenden Dental may recommend dental crowns to protect the tooth and the filling.
